    In the year 2014, the world's best football nations will compete for the trophy at the World Football Championship in Brazil. For the fourth time the tschutti heftli collector’s album is taking care of the artistic highlight of this event. Since 2008 we have been publishing a sticker album of a special kind: instead of boring photographs our collector’s album presents real works of art: all teams are designed by illustrators, graphic designers, cartoonists, and other artists.

    This year, for the first time, we are announcing an illustration contest in order to find the artists for our new album. Convince our jury that your illustrations must be part of our collector’s album by designing a portrait of the greatest footballer of the last century - the unforgettable Pélé.

    You are free to choose whatever technique suits you best for this task: 2- or 3-D, in colour or monochrome, digital or analogue, painted, pasted or drawn. Just hand in your work as a PDF or JPG file in at least A4 format at 300 dpi. Only one submission per participant will be considered.

    There is no entry fee.


    This is an open contest for all designers, illustrators, artists, professional or amateur worldwide.


    The winners of the contest will have the privilege to design one of the teams of the 2014 World Cup for our legendary collector’s album. The wide distribution of the album in Switzerland and Germany will offer you a great platform to present your work to a large audience.

    All artists represented in our album will receive a lump sum for their expenses the amount of which will be determined by the sales figures of our album. And lest we forget: besides material prizes sponsored by Pélé Sports, our jury will award cash prizes totaling 5,000 Swiss Francs (more than 5000 US dollars) for the best works.
